Day 5 of the 30 day music challenge!

Name a song that reminds you of someone...

This one is so easy for me!

In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel reminds me of my dear hubby, Mark!

In your eyes, the light, the heat...
In your eyes, I am complete...

Today started better. Had a great night's sleep, long and sound. Just what I needed. Just don't feel so stressed as I did yesterday. Didn't work out, but I will get back to that today!

And on into a nice long weekend!

emoticon Name a song that makes you sad...

The Sad Cafe by the Eagles...

...Maybe the time has drawn the faces I recall
But things in this life change very slowly,
If they ever change at all
Thereís no use in asking why,
It just turned out that way
So meet me at midnight baby
Inside the sad cafe.
Why donít you meet me at midnight baby,
Inside the sad cafe...

Yeah, that one always brings a heartfelt sing and cry...


As for today... the rains and tornados are supposed to go away! Should be a nice cool evening for a long walk with my honey.

And the healthy eating will continue!

    I cannot THINK of these things!! I can think of too many that make me sad!! Richard Marx had one from 1989 when my mom passed away....I think it was "Right Here Waiting."

    It would be nice if the tornados would stay away.

Name a song that makes you happy...

F*** You by Lily Allen

I love this song, it makes me giddy happy.

Tonight was my night off exercise...
Stayed within calories!
It's all good.

30 Day Music Challenge! C'mon & play! You know you wanna!

Monday, May 23, 2011

This sounds like fun!! I'm gonna' play! Rules at bottom of page!

So, my day one entry...
My favorite song has to be "Jig of Life" by Kate Bush... the best lyrics of any song ever! It also has a snippet of Irish jig that her brother found... mmmmmmm...

Here's a sample:
Hello, old lady.
I know your face well.
I know it well.

She says,
I'll be sitting in your mirror.
Now is the place where the crossroads meet.
Will you look into the future?

"Never, never say goodbye
To my part of your life.
No, no, no, no, no!
Oh, oh, oh...

and the poem:
Can't you see where memories are kept bright?
Tripping on the water like a laughing girl.
Time in her eyes is spawning past life,
One with the ocean and the woman unfurled,
Holding all the love that waits for you here.
Catch us now for I am your future.
A kiss on the wind and we'll make the land.
Come over here to where When lingers,
Waiting in this empty world,
Waiting for Then, when the lifespray cools.
For Now does ride in on the curl of the wave,
And you will dance with me in the sunlit pools.
We are of the going water and the gone.
We are of water in the holy land of water
And all that's to come runs in
With the thrust on the strand."
